It’s SO hard to find a good daycare

Sometimes it’s hard to tell the good from the bad.

But then again…

All the good intenshions in the werld cant make up for sum thingz.

Price is a factor as well, but if you choose a daycare based on cost alone, it is unlikely that the facilities and equipment will be up-to-date.

Glinda’s Parent Hack

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008
By Glinda


Over the past few months, I have been to more kid birthday parties than I care to remember.  But one thing that has struck me is the utter and complete waste of giving children bithday cards.

Seriously, they could give a crap about cards.  Unless there is money or a gift certificate inside.  But even then, the card is tossed and the contents kept. 

So I began to ask myself, why even bother buying a card?  That’s an extra buck or two per child that I don’t need to spend, and in this economy, the extra buck or two can be quite handy to have.

And since I have my own slave labor over here, what is to stop my son from becoming a cheap, one-man card making operation?

Not a thing, my friends.  Not a thing.

Just think of the personalization! Think of the less waste! Think of the child’s pride in creating something so special for their friend!

There are no drawbacks here, people.

If we all just had our kids start making all of our birthday cards, we could change the world, I tell you! 

A revolution, if you will, one card at a time.

Lunchbox Security Upgrade

Have you ever had this problem (well, not you, your munchkin): you go to school, obediently stow your lunchbox in your cubby, get schooled all morning and then, just when you’ve worked up a ferocious appetite doing your quadratic equation colouring exercises, you find someone has eaten your lunch?


This sweet little invention will put paid to that, as well as give your pride and joy the (always useful) reputation as a badass. Plastic sandwich bags, pre-printed with mold.

Sadly, not yet available at your local grocery store. Meanwhile, you can make authentic moldy lunchbags from the instructions in Sandwich Bag Science!
